Since DD has been fully bottlefed (currently using up my ebm freezer stash alongside formula) she's fed 3 hourly pretty consistently during the day, sometimes she'll go to 4. Last feed is at 11pm or midnight depending when I go to bed (I transfer her from the cotbed in her room to the small crib in our room which usually wakes her up but if not I dreamfeed) and that will usually take her through til 8 or 9 in the morning but sometimes she'll want an extra feed in the night.
4 hour schedule here. I have twins tho so if they demanded we'd be on completely different schedules and non stop feeding which we are when I've tried it. This way I and they know when the feeds happen and they've adjusted well. I combination feed though with breast and formula, i jus swap who gets what on each feed.
My LO was in SCBU for 2 weeks when born, she came out feeding every 4hrs. She wasnt settling at night so I changed her to every 3hrs, worked a treat Sometimes she may want a feed 30mins or so early which is not a problem I will give, its all worth while if she sleeps all night
I guess I feed on demand, but I try to feed him no less than every 2 hours. I don't want to over feed him and then he sicks it all back up (has happened a couple of times) But he's pretty good at his feeding routine he's set himself. It's usually every 2-3 hours. I get one
4-5 hour stretch at night between 7pm-2am(ish) depending on what time he falls asleep... Like if he falls asleep at 7 it's usually around midnight he wakes up. If he falls asleep at 9 it's usually between 1-2am.
But I was told by both midwife and HV that I was meant to demand feed. So that's what I'm doing
we fed roughly every 3-4 hours during the day and we demand feed at night.
i don't know if there's any truth to it but health visitors have always told me the more feeds they have in the day, the longer they sleep at night.
